Default Brush East Canyon Stage 3

I'm seeking local volunteers to finish clearing East Canyon Trail in Golden Ears Park on Saturday, May 23.

We will be hiking out of the East Canyon parking lot (far end) at 7:30 a.m. precisely.

It will be at least a 10 hour day clearing from 7.5km to however far we get. I'll have all the tools. Bring work gloves and not your most stylish hiking clothes

If you can join, please reply to this post or by CT email.

More important than this project, we need more people as ongoing team members. We are particularly short of volunteers for "long jobs"- about four of them per year. This appeal is directed to those who live reasonably close to Golden Ears Park.

This Wednesday, I'm packing a brush cutter up the canyon to get a head start on the clearing. If you can't join on Saturday but can make it on Wednesday, let me know on this thread. Hiking out of the East Canyon parking lot at 7:30 on Wednesday too.

DONE East Canyon is brushed to the 10km beach campsite. Also, all obstacles are cleared or mitigated to about 9km.

We ignored the half dozen or so rotten poles across the trail between 9 and 10km. and did not bother to check the mass blowdown past 10km

Next East Canyon sweep: May 23, 2018

Attached is the shot of the team that cleared the final 3km

Well done & thanks!

Sorry I missed this thread, maybe because it was started just before the long weekend.

In any case I wouldn't have been able to help this weekend, but maybe in the fall I could tackle the "mass blowdown" past 10km.

Very nice, ladies and gentlemen. A big thanks from the two of us. Does this mean I should take the bike when the time comes? : )

John, I don't think we made much difference for bike travel. I have no experience, but it seems cycling past 5.5km would not be great.

Al - Is there a website that details trail maintenance days? I'd love to join. I was unavailable for this most recent date, and am not able to join on Wednesday.

Thanks for the comments, guys.

Pardeep: This is the only site I've used other than RMOC's closed forum. The next gig will be to extend the Nutt trail 400m to the sub peak lookout to Robie Reid. Not far to clear but lots to do. I'll try for Saturday, June 13, posting for it later - it will be dependent on good weather.

Thank you for the update Al. Currently, I'm committed to Alastair's trip to Shuksan on June 13, but I will re-assess closer to the date.

I was camping in Golden Ears on the weekend and made it a point to hike the east canyon trail to the 10 km mark. A great job and thanks for all your effort
